I have a dell pc dimensionC521 . Windows XP home edition SP2. Sound device Sigma telaudio
I've been trying to record some radio programmes so that I can save them for a while on the pc.I have tried audacity and freecorder but but have not been successful;have come to the conclusion that it must be a hardware problem as the only possibilities I have for recording are line in, microphone and rear microphone. I have discovered that many of my friends are able to record what they hear thro' the speakers. My question is "Is it a hardware problem" and if so is there a feasible solution?

are you mic'ing the stereo speakers? or is there an audio input on your soundcard? Know what i'd try if you can't get your speaker mic'd to record that way is taking a speaker wire and hooking it up to a headphone plug and stick that sucker into one of the mic slots, never tried it. but it should work i would think.

Hi Nita
There's a chance it's just your audio configuration.
Your system utilizes 7.1 channel audio and alot of those free audio recorders that record directly from the sound hardware won't record with that setting.
Configure it for two channel audio and standard desktop speakers and try again.
I use to use this little freebie but it won't record 5.1 channel audio. If I switch to 2 channel mode, it works fine. Example Below:
